Psalm 78:3

things we have heard and known
and that our fathers have passed down to us.

Proverbs 6:20-35

My son, keep your father’s command,
and don’t reject your mother’s teaching. Always bind them to your heart;
tie them around your neck. When you walk here and there, they will guide you;
when you lie down, they will watch over you;
when you wake up, they will talk to you.read more.
For a command is a lamp, teaching is a light,
and corrective discipline is the way to life. They will protect you from an evil woman,
from the flattering tongue of a stranger. Don’t lust in your heart for her beauty
or let her captivate you with her eyelashes. For a prostitute’s fee is only a loaf of bread,
but an adulteress goes after a precious life. Can a man embrace fire
and his clothes not be burned? Can a man walk on burning coals
without scorching his feet? So it is with the one who sleeps with
another man’s wife;
no one who touches her will go unpunished. People don’t despise the thief if he steals
to satisfy himself when he is hungry. Still, if caught, he must pay seven times as much;
he must give up all the wealth in his house. The one who commits adultery lacks sense;
whoever does so destroys himself. He will get a beating and dishonor,
and his disgrace will never be removed. For jealousy enrages a husband,
and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge. He will not be appeased by anything
or be persuaded by lavish gifts.
